Lynette and Cloe de la Vega, the mother-daughter duo behind the South American-Aussie cafe Abuelo in Covent Garden (aka one of our fave brunch spots in town) are heading just around the corner for their next opening, Uncle Zorro. Given that coffee is a big part of Abuelo, it’s not surprising it’s gonna feature heavily at the new joint – in fact, the ground floor of Uncle Zorro will be a cafe serving speciality coffee alongside grab-and-go salads and hot sarnies.
Things will get a bit funkier downstairs in the basement, which will be home to a 70s-influenced bar. Open until midnight, you’ll be able to get Australian wines (a nod to the pair’s Antipodean heritage) alongside some natty bottles from around the world, cocktails and a sharing plates food menu.
